So, for this one, it is 2x14=3x+6
Can someone please explain to me how they would solve this problem?
I think you would add 14 to the 6, but I'm not sure..

subtract 2x from each side.
subtract 6 from each side 
OH! So 2x3x is 1,
1x14+6
then subtract 6 from the fourteen
and get 1x= 8
correct? 
HuH?
subtract 2x from each side
2x2x14=3x2x+6 or
14=x+6
subtract six from each side
146=x+66
20=x 
Ah, okay. I see what I did wrong, thank you.
